just have to play with what works for you, and not what other people have.
Thanks for the advice.
I've been working on it more and am still having problems. I think a big part of it is the vDroop. Do you have Load Line Calibration enabled or disabled?

I've been trying to get my OC without LLC enabled. As I understand it, vDroop exists to prevent damage to the CPU from a dangerous voltage spike that happens when coming out of full load. LLC is suppose to disable/counter this vDroop.

My question is... how much can having LLC enabled reduce the life time of your CPU? I'd like to have my CPU for an absolute minimum of three years; I've heard of LLC reducing CPU to as little as one year.

I've never heard that.
CPUs have a lifespan of many many years... of course OC'ing them will lower that lifespan, but taking it down to only 1 year? That sounds a bit far fetched.

My previous CPU (Q9650) ran with LLC on for over 3 years without degradation. That was at a minimal 4.0ghz @ 1.34v, so I don't think that you are being informed correctly, regarding the LLC reducing lifespan by that much.
